Remember inching your way across the gymnasium on a plastic scooter? Imagine that, times ten, and you have the Landshark ($80). But instead of the standing like on a regular skateboard, your little one kneels and kicks their feet out to make this low-rider go.

And boy does it go. But don’t worry! It comes equipped with an easy-to-use breaking mechanism. And it’s so low to the ground, bad spills are rare — especially if your tot is outfitted with a helmet and pads. It also comes with a flag to make it more visible.

The Landshark performs really well on sidewalks, even bumpy patches. But it’s smooth surfaces — like a driveway or paved trail — where it really excels. Plus, the padded wooden deck and steering bar keep your kid comfy.

If you’re looking to shake up your stable of scooters, this bad boy makes a great pick. To shop, go to
